Default help with compound angles

hi guys i am new in the forum and i need some help with a project i am working in a elliptic dome formed by a series of irregular hexagons frames (honey comb type). i am having troubles to calculate the saw settings for my compound angles from my data. i have the mitre angle between the struts and the inclination angle between them. for example struts A&B form an angle of 96.66 and each one has an inclination of 10.86 from a plane axis between them. i suppose i need a mathematic formula for it, any help will be very appreciated.
Javier.

Hi Javier

There are a mumber of sites on the web with compound angle calculations on them I find this one interesting because it does the calculations for you, has some useful diagrammatic illustrations and gives some of the mathematical formulae used to make the calculations - so you can build your own spreadsheet if needs be - or alternatively you can just download their spreadsheet

Regards

Phil
